Example of what it will look like : 

This is an example of what the cycling rainbow username will look like!


I've only tested this on IPB 3.4.2, but I'm sure it will work with earlier version and later versions. Let me know if it doesn't though.



Follow the tutorial How to Easily Cycle Rainbow Username On IP. Board below :
  • Go to your ACP
  •  Look & Feel
  • Your Skin
  • globalTemplate


Place the following code near the bottom of your globalTemplate. I put mine above the <!-- ::: Footer ::: --> part of the globalTemplate.

The code:
<script>
var speed=80
var hex=new Array("00","14","28","3C","50","64","78","8C","A0","B4","C8","DC","F0")
var r=1
var g=1
var b=1
var seq=1
function changetext(){
for(i=0;i<document.getElementsByName("Rainbow").length;i++){
var storetext=document.getElementById? document.getElementsByName("Rainbow")[i] : document.all.highlight
rainbow="#"+hex[r]+hex[g]+hex[b]
storetext.style.color=rainbow
}
}
function change(){
if (seq==6){
b--
if (b==0)
seq=1
}
if (seq==5){
r++
if (r==12)
seq=6
}
if (seq==4){
g--
if (g==0)
seq=5
}
if (seq==3){
b++
if (b==12)
seq=4
}
if (seq==2){
r--
if (r==0)
seq=3
}
if (seq==1){
g++
if (g==12)
seq=2
}
changetext()
}
function starteffect(){
if (document.all||document.getElementById)
flash=setInterval("change()",speed)
}
starteffect()
</script>

Once you put that code somewhere in there, click 'Save', then head over to Members > Member Groups > Manage Member Groups.
Click on the group you want to use the rainbow username style on.


For the group prefix, use this: 
<span name="Rainbow">

For the group sufix, use this:
</span>

Click on 'Complete Edit' and you're done!

Creating Easy Spoiler Code for MyBB

Creating Easy Spoiler Code for MyBB. MyBB spoiler MyCode you can easily customize WITHOUT a plugin.

A popular forum BBCode for forums has been the spoiler code, the button you create that can hide everything in your post, such as text, images, videos, etc. For MyBB, this does not come as a default BBCode (or MyCode), and must be manually coded into the MyBB powered forum. There have been a few plugins but some of them can be a bit buggy and sometimes needs updates when a new version of MyBB comes out, so instead of using plugins, here’s some MyCode you can use to create a MyBB spoiler that doesn’t require a plugin and can be used no matter what version of MyBB you’re using.

Follow the tutorial below :
  • Go to your forum’s Admin CP
  • Configuration
  • MyCode
  • Add New MyCode
  • Put in “Spoiler” as your Title and “Spoiler button” as your Short Description.
  • For the Regular Expression field, add the following:
\[spoiler\](.*?)\[/spoiler\]


next in the Replacement field, add this:
<div>
<input type="button" value="Show Spoiler" style="width:80px;font-size:10px;margin:0px;padding:0px;" onclick="if (this.parentNode.parentNode.getElementsByTagName('div')[1].getElementsByTagName('div')[0].style.display != '') { this.parentNode.parentNode.getElementsByTagName('div')[1].getElementsByTagName('div')[0].style.display = '';this.innerText = ''; this.value = 'Hide Spoiler'; } else { this.parentNode.parentNode.getElementsByTagName('div')[1].getElementsByTagName('div')[0].style.display = 'none'; this.value = 'Show Spoiler';}">
</div>
<div>
     <div style="background: #ffffff;margin: 0 15px 15px 15px;padding: 5px;border: 1px solid black;display: none;">
$1
</div>
</div>
</div>


Save the new MyCode, you just created a MyBB spolier.
Here’s the results for the MyBB spoiler:



The spoiler is very customizable, you can adjust the width, font size, border size, border color, etc. Simply use the

$1
MyCode to use the new spoiler in your forum.

It is Creating Easy Spoiler Code for MyBB, Hopefully can help you.

Add Secret PIN To ACP Login On MyBB

Add Secret PIN To ACP Login On MyBB. Your secret PIN helps prevent account theft, but this pin will also appear when you login to the ACP login.

So, let's get started.

Open ./admin/inc/class_page.php:

Around line 391:

Change
<div class="label"{$login_label_width}><label for="password">{$lang->password}</label></div>
         <div class="field"><input type="password" name="password" id="password" class="text_input" /></div>

To:
<div class="label"{$login_label_width}><label for="password">{$lang->password}</label></div>
         <div class="field"><input type="password" name="password" id="password" class="text_input" /></div>
         <div class="label"{$login_label_width}><label for="pin">Secret PIN</label></div>
         <div class="field"><input type="password" name="pin" id="pin" class="text_input" /></div>




next in ./admin/index.php
if($user['uid'])
{
     $query = $db->simple_select("users", "*", "uid='".$user['uid']."'");
     $mybb->user = $db->fetch_array($query);
}

To:
if($user['uid'])
{
     $query = $db->simple_select("users", "*", "uid='".$user['uid']."'");
     $mybb->user = $db->fetch_array($query);
}

if (isset($config['acp_pin']) && $mybb->input['pin'] != $config['acp_pin']) {
     $default_page->show_login("Invalid PIN","error");
}




Ok. Then, open ./inc/config.php and add anywhere:
$config['acp_pin'] = 'yourpin';


Things To Know:
-The PIN does not have to be a number, it can be anything.
- If the PIN is not set in .inc/config.php, it will not be checked/verified.

Preview:

If the wrong PIN will like this picture


 That's okay Add Secret PIN To ACP Login On MyBB, may be useful for you.

How To Install A Style On vBulletin

How To Install A Style On vBulletin. Alright, so I understand that many users have questions pertaining how they should install themes and most of the time it is newbies who are doing it the first time. Installing a style to your website is quite easy and takes only a couple minutes depending on the size. Below are some instructions/Hints/Tips.

  • Find the theme you want! This can take time for some like myself. Find one that fits your site the best and the topic.
  • Download the style, open the .ZIP/.RAR file and see if it includes a "README" or something similar. If it includes one, then you are good to go, just follow the instructions.
  • Almost 99.9% of the time, you will take the file that says "Upload" and place whats inside in your Vbulletin folder/site location in the FTP.
  • Take the XML file that is included and place it on your desktop. This will help you for easier access to it for later steps.
